Please consider supporting Franklin’s List, a new political action committee (PAC) whose mission is to assist scientists, engineers, and other STEM candidates get elected to public office. In addition to supporting qualified incumbent candidates, it will look to draft and support candidates to run in open or competitive races. Further, the PAC will target incumbents weak on science, looking to replace them with more informed candidates.

You can find out more information as well as sign up for email updates, volunteer opportunities, and donate to Franklin’s List on the website - http://franklins-list.org/

A great op-ed in today’s Baltimore Sun on the importance of increased science literacy among politicians and the need for more scientists in public office. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/oped/bs-ed-political-science-20131215,0,5785661.story
